August 1st through August 7th is “National Simplify Your Life Week!” And with as busy as our lives have been, I’ve decided to celebrate this concept during the entire month of August. My goal is to get back to the essentials and simplify things – this will likely include posts on meditating, learning to be still, organizing various rooms of the house, and more. So stay tuned!
For this first celebration post, I thought I’d share some of my favorite organization pictures that I’ve found on Pinterest. I don’t know about you, but I love having a place for everything and everything in its place!
I love window seats! Several ideas turn bookshelves on their sides and add cushions to the tops. I’d recommend checking out end of summer clearance sales for outdoor furniture cushions. You can always recover with different fabric if you don’t like the clearance options.
I love the idea of turning a bench into a filing cabinet – thought I wouldn’t file confidential documents here unless it’s able to lock. And I love the push pin board. I think I’d use the top box to organize jewelry, personally.
Step 1 for me is to reorganize my linen closet to look more like this. I need it to hold linens for both queen and king size beds, towels, plunger and cleaning supplies, and little extras for guests like mini shampoos, lotions, extra toothbrushes, etc.
What’s your first step to Simplify Your Life this week?
